* ''WhoseLineIsItAnyway'': The game Foreign Film Dub with guest star Sid Caesar is actually a subversion. One of Caesar's gags is his apparent fluency in many languages, but he actually only speaks English and Yiddish. ** And StephenFry in a Questions Only game set in ancient Rome using only Latin (until he gets flustered when asked about the Parthenon)

* Patrick Jane in ''TheMentalist'' speaks excellent Spanish as shown in episode ''My Blue Heaven'' when he is living in a undetermined Spanish-speaking country, even when in-universe dialogue from two local characters could make you think otherwise.

small fix
* Russian soldiers in Afghanistan ''Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain'' speak in perfect Russian language, so players knowing Russian may find themselves in the situation that they do not need to extract a translator. Same is true for African soldiers on Angola-Zaire border, who speak nice Kikongo, Afrikaans and other african languages. Slightly averted on some text banners.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLifeAsATeenageRobot'' has one episode with Surprisingly Good Japanese. After a mission in UsefulNotes/{{Tokyo}}, Jenny loses her English-language disc, and can only speak Japanese for the rest of the episode. Her voice actress, Creator/JaniceKawaye, is bilingual and her lines are absolutely flawless.
